After a quick taste of the 2019/20 Nutri-Grain Series, Zach Morris was determined to race against the IronMen across each round in 20/21. From the NSW Central Coast, Morris idolised Nutri-Grain IronMan champion Kendrick Louis every since the two crossed paths when Morris was a child. Fast-forward to today, Moz finished 8th overall in the 2020/21 Nutri-Grain Series, and has a bronze medal from Round 3 to go with it.
